I would like to thank our Extension Homemaker club presidents for all their work in their clubs and all our other county events. At the recent council meeting, the group voted to donate $500 to the Girl Scouts for their upcoming trip to Savannah, Georgia and also donated $200 to the Decatur County Marching Band to help with upcoming trips to competitions, etc. These are just a few of the projects the Homemakers are doing for the community.

Several of our ladies will be attending the Madison District Retreat next week.
